Glestain Knives are instantly recognizable by the rectangular scallops running down one side of the blade. This design of a Glestain knife is not only beautiful, but extremely functional. This is the only design that truly works to keep starchy foods, like potatoes and cheese, from clinging to the blade this greatly increases speed when dicing and chopping. Glestain's proprietary Acuto stainless steel holds a razor sharp edge and is very easy to resharpen. It is a Molybdenum Vanadium steel set to a rockwell hardness of 58/59. Glestain knives are in a class of their own; you will not be disappointed with its superior performance.
